As most would be aware, the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services functionality is mainly for use within ASP.NET – and browser-based solutions.
What if you want to initiate a report from within a “WinForms” app…?
One thought is to include code to re-direct to a browser – but a better way is to auto-extract (render) as PDF – or MS-Excel. This uses the Reporting Services Web Service – to drive RS from underneath.
Refer to this post on the MSDN Channel 9 forum – with some sample code.
